Prior's Field School was founded in 1902 by Julia Huxley the mother of both Julian and Aldous Huxley and is set in 23 acres of parkland.
The School was designed by the architect Charles Voysey in the Arts and Craft Style and many of the original stylised features, such as keyholes, door handles and fireplaces, can still be seen today. Additions to the original building were designed by Voysey's pupil Tom Muntzer and the new three storey teaching centre which opened in 2013 faithfully follows the original Arts and Crafts style.
Facilities for music making are excellent, and in 2016 we were able to make use of the newly built Music School.
The Layout of the Rose Gardens was inspired by Gertrude Jekyll and includes herbaceous borders, dry Bargate stone walls, a pond and rock garden. Initially the gardens were tended by lady gardeners who trained at Swanley Horticultural College.
Accommodation will be in single study bedrooms with washbasins, there are a limited number of rooms which have en-suite facilities.
